Man at His Best

Forgo The Neckbeard, Try The Neckband Instead

Not as weird as you think it is.

Audio doyen, Klipsch, reveals another faddish product. The R5 Neckband is an entry-level piece that has a flexible neckband wrapped in hand-stitched leather. Slapped with an IPX4 grading, the device is splash-proof (though we’re unsure if that claim covers the leather as well) and has an integrated mic for calls. 

With an eight-hour battery life, the R5’s 5MM micro-driver can deliver that Klipsch sound via aptX streaming. 

Klipsch’s R5 Neckband retails for SGD199 and is available at all major Klipsch retailers and store.
